do you think season passes are worth it?

    We all know it ever since cod elite kicked these off more and more publishers are selling them personally I don't actually think there worth it because the dlc that comes with them can be low quality but if your into spending £80 on a game id at least expect it to be half decent but I have not seen 1 pass that offers quality dlc I just think they are becoming more of a get more money from consumer thing id rather wait and buy idicidual. So what's your take love them or hate them

    I think DLC in general is a waste of money, then we have season passes... for a season pass you can end up paying as much for some new maps as you did for the whole game :\ how can £30+ for some maps be justified?

    Call of Duty is a great example, the season pass actually costs more than I paid for the game on launch day.

    I was a PC gamer before a console gamer so I have been used to getting high quality maps for free, with Unreal Tournament 2004 map making competitions were held, the the best maps would be put in to a community map pack which was released as a free download.

    Sadly more and more games are just milking customers for money, Forza Horizon is a great example too. The cost of the car packs which are released each month is stupid. Compared to an old Microsoft game called Midtown Madness 2 where fan website were hosting 100's of cars, mods and other content that expanded the game, all for free.

    I did used to like that eventually maps for games like Gears and Halo were made available for free on Xbox Live, sadly those days are over and the maps have doubled in price.

    The only good experience I've had with DLC is with Borderlands and even there I think they took a misstep (Mad Moxxi). I did pay for the season pass for Borderlands 2 as the quality of the DLC for the first game was great and I've not regretted it with the new DLC they've released so far. I guess it depends on whether you like the game and are willing to pay for more content.

    I like the season passes as i would buy any COD DLC anyway. Cod's Season pass is 50,- Euro's. If you would buy all the dlc's, you would have to pay 60 Euro. That's 10,- Euro difference , so for me it was a no brainer.
    I also bought the Walking Dead Season pass back then & i'm glad i did. Season 2 is coming & planning of buying the season pass as well.

    I also bought the Max Payne 3 season pass, but i never played the mutliplayer. I only played the single player. So that was a waste of my money.

    Every game I own has season pass dlc, I have brought all of them. Ill rather buy the content save money and pay once only. So if I run out of money I don't have to wait to get paid then buy the dlc.
